† Appearances (goals)

Joan Francesc Ferrer Sicilia (born 5 February 1970), commonly known as Rubi, is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a winger, and a current coach.

Playing career

Born in Vilassar de Mar, Barcelona, Catalonia, Rubi never competed in higher than Segunda División B during a nine-year senior career. He started out at local club UE Vilassar de Mar, in 1989.

Rubi appeared in the promotion playoffs to Segunda División with both AEC Manlleu and Terrassa FC, falling short on both occasions. Whilst with the former, he scored in a 3–3 away draw against Extremadura CF on 29 May 1994,[1] but the team eventually finished in second position in its group.

Managerial career

Rubi began working as a coach with Vilassar de Mar, and subsequently was in charge of several Tercera División sides in his native region. He was also promoted to the third level with RCD Espanyol B, in 2006.

After a short stint with UD Ibiza-Eivissa, Rubi was appointed at Benidorm CF.[2] He left the club in the end of the campaign, after achieving a sixth-place finish in the third level.

On 8 June 2012, Rubi signed with Girona FC after having being part of the staff in previous years.[3] He took the team to the best season of their history, leading them to the fourth position in division two and being eventually knocked out in the play-offs.[4]

On 28 June 2013, Rubi left Girona and joined FC Barcelona, being added to Tito Vilanova's staff.[5] On 3 June of the following year, he replaced dismissed Juan Ignacio Martínez at the helm of Real Valladolid, signing a two-year deal.[6]

Rubi was replaced by Gaizka Garitano on 6 July 2015, after failing to win promotion to La Liga in the play-offs.[7] On 28 October, he was appointed manager of Levante UD, taking over for sacked Lucas Alcaraz;[8] he only managed to collect seven wins until the end of the season, and the side returned to the second tier after a six-year stay. He was subsequently sacked on 26 May 2016.[9]
